Located in downtown Montreal, St. Catherine is a must see destination particularly if you enjoy popping in and out of shops and restaurants. St Catherine also hosts some of the bigger shopping centres including the Eaton Centre and my favorite Simon's. We just visited Montreal and had the unique experience of watching the St. Patrick's Day Parade on St. Catherine...so... More

St Catherine Street has everything you could need. Shops on shops on shops. Interesting restaurants, and some history thrown in there. We spent most of our time on or around St Catherine's. Definitely a must see if you are in Montreal.

this overly beaten path is exciting, unusual, never risky, fun, exotic, "people watching", bursting of lively good nightlife, shopping and bargains and a lot more.

Even during snowfall, this street is great to wander and check out the various storefronts and vendors along your route. Best to park your vehicle somewhere and go.

Walking around Ste. Catherine St was okay, a little quiet and boring given it was 4:00 in the afternoon. Shops are nothing unique ... all the same stuff we get back home. Would have preferred to see a quaint French Canadian Cafe here and there.

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
